Habib Plasencia was born in 1976 and lives in West Roxbury, Massachusetts. He has attended Gateway Arts since 2008.
Plasencia is inspired by the movies and TV shows he has recently seen, and he loves to draw in his sketchbook. Plasencia’s work is very reactive to his surrounding; over the years he has developed a unique drawing style that combines elements of nature and existing anime characters. Recently, Plasencia has expanded his use of materials and has become more confident in his own drawing skills, moving away from anime as his main source. These new drawings are quite striking and have a resemblance to indigenous or aboriginal portraits.
